Having missed out on Trent Richardson earlier in the draft, the St Louis Rams have chosen Isaiah Pead of the Cincinnati Bearcats as the heir apparent to superstar Steven Jackson.

Pead wasn’t rated as highly as some of the other running backs of this class but is certainly worth the pick. This is a modern day running back who is versatile and can play all over the field.
